William Hamilton Bristow
June 22, 1933 – December 22, 2019
It is with great sadness that the
family of William Hamilton Bristow announce his passing on Sunday December 22,
2019 at the age of 86.
Bill was born on June 22, 1933 to Sidney and Sara Bristow in New West Minister BC. Pre-Deceased by his parents, brother Walter Bristow, Sister Effie, Sister Ruby, Sister Ethel Casey and loving wife Catherine Paul.
Mr. Bristow will be lovingly
remembered by his daughters Geraldine Toews (Alan) of Williams Lake, Cindy
Terbasket of Kamloops, Darlean Paul of Kamloops, Brenda Paul of Kamloops, and
by his sons William Bristow (Brenda) of Williams Lake, Don Bristow of Williams
Lake, Mel Paul (Trisha) of Kamloops, Vance Paul of Kamloops, Shane Paul of
Kamloops. Also, by his many great grand children, grand children, nieces,
nephews and an abundance of friends that have accumulated throughout the years.
Bill was a strong hardworking man
his whole life. He took pride in everything he touched. His work career took him from pushing logs
down the river, logging truck driver and a loader operator before he retired.
In his younger years Bill enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing, cooking, using
all of his construction skills to construct many of his beautiful creations and
spending time with family and friends. In his later years Mr. Bristow really
enjoyed the double takes and smiles he brought to peoples faces when cruising
around town with his dog Buster. Buster was built a safety box and was hand
painted at the side port holes to make his dog look like a bear. He would be
delightfully amused when people would tell him they followed him all over town
just to take a picture of Buster. Buster will be taken for one last ride in
Bills tuck very soon.
Mr. Bristow has requested no
service and there will be a celebration of life during his birthday weekend
June 19 – June 21, 2020. He will be cremated and his ashes placed at a later
date. The family would like to express their appreciation and gratitude to the
many Doctors that had helped him over the years. Heart felt appreciation to all
of the 5 North Nurses and a very special thank you to Nurse Taylor. Bill would
repeat how wonderful and caring Nurse Taylor was to him which brings comfort
and relief to the family to know that he was tenderly cared for.
